Jesus Christ is central to our faith, but do we really know as much about Him as we should? In order to know how great a Savior we have, we must first understand who He is (His Person) and what He has done for us (His Work). In this class, we explore these crucial truths. The early Church painstakingly formed the full teachings about Christ over several centuries of controversy. In the end, the Biblical formulation that Jesus was fully God, fully man, one Person, with two distinct natures was arrived at. Later, the Church described the work of Christ as Mediator between God and man in terms of three offices: prophet, priest, and king.
